benson_artThe Little Garden Market’s chef/owner Rick Benson is making waves in the art world. Art Collector World magazine, published by San Diego’s Dolphin and Hawk Gallery, extolled his work in their February issue. “This is really exciting for me,” says Benson, currently Dolphin and Hawk’s only New England artist, of the accolades. “The daring mission impossible artist from Vermont has been creating his spiral masterpieces one circle at a time,” the article reads. “Benson’s compositions are serene and bold abstract creations pushing the traditionalism of the Eastern United States a step further into a modern and contemporary vision for the future.” Benson’s work is on display at The Charlotte Library.
